Bif (2183) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle- Pours a deep golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt sweetness and a bit of citrus and spice. Taste of Caramel sweetness with a touch of spice and bit of fruit in the background. Mild bitteriness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and easy. Decent drinker but could use a bit more character.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2016 Nice balance of hops, malt, flavour creating an easy drinking flavoursome beer at a great price. Has become a summer favourite. Very enjoyable and recommended.

drjoeng (1103) - SINGAPORE - AUG 30, 2016
4.7%ABV. American Pale Ale. Poured out amber. 12SRM. Nose has some nice fresh citrus and pine aromas. Mouthfeel is light soapy. Palate has some toasted malt flavor. Breadcrumbs and wheat toast. Hops are non-descript and barely there. Finish is light and beery.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2016 Bottle from the local "Dans". Nicely balanced APA from the Gage Roads. Very good value for money.

Itsumishi (46) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2016 This beer fills the void left by Dos Blockos Pale getting more expensive and Fat Yak getting turned into the pisswater CUB have turned it into. Relatively cheap, reliable, hoppy, well balanced. Pours a cloudy gold with foamy white head that settles quickly. Aroma is grassy hops, pine, citrus a slight bready malt profile. Not exciting but decent enough. Taste is medium sweet medium bitter. Palate is overly carbonated and a bit thin; certainly the beers weakest point.

beer-yum (1549) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Restrained grassy aroma in a golden Amber pour. Reasonably balanced brew with a brief hint of fruity malt in the body before a laid back finish. Little trace of the four American hops used in its production though.

Refreshing, the long bitter finish reminds me more of a lager. Solid beer and summer time friend

One of the best value beers Im yet to drink. Overall, I think this beer tastes better than a lot of the "premium" pale ales on the market, the cheaper price is a bonus that makes the overall experience that much sweeter (although not literally!). Quite a fruity aroma and strong-flavoured taste, but thats how I like my pale and golden ales. Howver, unlike other similarly strong flavoured ales, I can happily get through a six pack or more of these without it becoming overpowering. Would strongly recommend! The other beers that Ive tried out of Gage Roads Brewery are also quality.

Bottle. Some caramel and indistinct hop flavours. Not a bad beer, especially for the price. Not exactly memorable though

One of the cheapest beers at the local Liquorland. Citrus, delicate hops bitterness, cloudy appearance. Not bad at all. Probably much better than most of the more expensive pales on offer there
